Great story and fair play to them. Had a fantastic day on Inisbofin many moons ago, cycling round the island with the sun splitting the stones. Was this not another spot Mayo tried to claim????

Twas ours originally!

Around 1830, Inishbofin passed from the possession of the Clanricards to the Browne family of Westport,[2]:23 descendants of the O'Malleys. In 1837, the island was in the Barony of Murrisk, County of Mayo, and Province of Connaught. It belonged to Howe Browne, 2nd Marquess of Sligo.[3]

Circa 1855, George Browne sold the island to Henry William Wilberforce. Cyril Allies, an English Catholic, bought it from Wilberforce in 1876, after having held it in mortgage since 1859.[9] It was eventually acquired by the Congested Districts Board for Ireland (later known as the Land Commission).[2]:23 The exact date is not known, but negotiations were "well advanced"[10] by 1910.

As of 1 February 1873, Inishbofin (as in the Civil Parish of Inishbofin which included Inishark as well) was no longer legally part of County Mayo but had become a part of County Galway.[10][11][12] this was a consequence of a severe localised famine in the winter of 1872/3 which necessitated relief be organised via the nearer Poor Law Union based in Clifden Workhouse rather than the previously responsible Poor Law Union based around Louisburgh Workhouse and in view of the particular concentration of distress in West Connemara and Inishbofin/Inishark.[12][13]


That now is an interesting bit of history!

That goal should settle Mayo.

Mayos kicking is horrible. Thet look very very nervous.

Referee isn't covering himself in glory.

Really looking forward to this. Whoever wins this, I'd love to see them go on and win Sam.

As a Kildare supporter I'm in two minds on the one hand I think our best chance would be Longford in Newbridge, but then on the other hand if we really want to see how good we are or how ready we are for D2 football next year, I wouldn't mind a crack at Mayo in Castlebar.

Think we should just sit out the next 5 years.
Pump that money into developing a lab in Dunganny to clone Graham Geraghty.

Would ye be interested in a deal with Kildare. We have a few lads from the past ourselves who could do with cloning.

We could build it around longwood. We Might get a grant.

surely the dublin man passing hand was been held back there as he tried to off load it, ending up in a throw ball? strange decision i thought

I thought the same. It wasn't so much of a throw ball as the ball falling out of the hand because he was pulled just as he tried to pass it.

Tommy fing Carr. How many people are in there at the game? Looks like they could have announced the crowd changes to the players.

The echo in the place is something else.

Ah here, 2 good derby games Westmeath/Offaly and Meath/Louth - combined winning margin of only 5 points and a broken nose, we get 3 mins of highlights...

I despair...

Have to race through them for the hurling! Still I thought Dessie Dolan summed up Kildare very succinctly as "no great shakes". He's right unfortunately. From the little we were show. I thought Meath looked the better of the four teams.

Gave me a wry smile, very true but Westmeath have just been relegated to Division 4 so the two bald men fighting over an analogy would have been more appropriate. Both teams will be quite defensive so with maybe 6k from both counties in CP expect another horror show whereas if if it was played in O'Connor park you'd probably get 8k and a proper intense championship game...

Wonder what kind of numbers Meath & Dublin will bring? Will there be 40,000 there?

I'm pissed off watching Kildare teams beating themselves with their own mistakes. Based on that display Wexford must be quietly confident of gettin a result. I do n't see any bite or toughness, or plan. I'm just pissed off. Oh to be able to look at this result philosophically and try and take some positives from it. But there are none. It's disheartening. That's what it is disheartening. Well Done Clare fully deserved your win. Should have won by more.
